Hi Manuscript Workers,
Today’s newsletter is a super quick one to announce last call for my webinar on Developmental Editing for Academics, which is happening tomorrow (Thursday, June 24th) at 10am PDT. All registrants will get access to a recording and transcript of the presentation, even if you aren’t able to attend live. You must register TODAY (Wednesday, June 23) by 2pm PDT to receive the invite to the live webinar. If you register after that, you won’t get the live webinar invite but you’ll still get access to the recording and transcript when they’re posted.
The webinar will introduce you to a career (or side gig) as a self-employed developmental editor for academic authors. In it, I'll cover what developmental editing is and how it fits into the academic publishing process for both journals and books. I'll also share the nuts and bolts of what developmental editors do with academic texts and how to acquire and work with clients.
While this webinar is geared toward people who want to work as developmental editors, it may also be useful for academic authors who want some tips on editing their own manuscripts.
There will be ample time for Q&A following the presentation. Hope to see you there!
